So, here’s the story from A to Z. If Ginger Spice gets her way, the Spice Girls will be reuniting in a regal way.
The Sun reports that Geri Horner wants the Spice Girls to launch their long awaited comeback on one of the biggest stages ever: the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Upstage the bride much?
Bride-to-be Meghan Markle is said to be a huge fan of the Spice Girls, especially Mel B (Scary Spice), whom she admired while growing up in Hollywood.
The source close to the Spice Girls told The Sun: “Geri suggested the Royal Wedding is a fantastic opportunity, and that they should offer to perform at the reception.” They also said the wedding (May 19) fits in “perfectly” with Geri’s idea that the reunion be very British.
She sees it as a big part of their identity, and one they should keep. But at the moment the girls are not all decided on the topic of performing. And surprisingly it is Mel C, not Victoria Beckham, who is refusing to get on stage. Despite reports to the contrary, Victoria is now quite proud of the Spice Girls and their achievements. She feels strongly that if they reunite, they will have to perform.
The source continued to say that Mel is hesitant to reunite and will need some persuasion.
The ladies held a “secret meeting” recently. The Sun reveals that during their one-hour rendezvous, they ate sushi, talked about their kids, and launched plans for several projects, including a television deal and a “greatest hits” album.
Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) described the meet-up as “extra special,” saying, “It was just like, Friday, we thought we would all catch up, everyone was in town, let’s do this, let’s catch up. But I don’t think any of us were expecting, we had such a lovely afternoon. We sat down, we had lunch together, we sat round.”
It was the first time the bandmates had been in the same room together since 2012.
